Daniela Pascual – Quito, 1993.
I am a practitioner straddling urban studies and performance art. I spend most of my time learning and trying to articulate how bodies, landscapes, and images speak to each other.
My general concerns span housing issues, modes of inhabiting, and organisational practices. In particular, I’m interested in permanence: what enables/impedes a person or groups of people to be in a place, and what remains when we are gone?
Currently a student in the Live Art and Performance Studies MA programme at the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki, I’m working on a thesis about miradores, viewpoints in Spanish. Tourism, movement techniques, and how images inform our imaginaries about space, especially cities, are at the core of my ongoing research.
I live in Helsinki. You can find information about my previous experience in my CV.
